(laughter) see, i told you. the factor tip of the day. one of the most common phrases in the english language is i'm sorry. we all say it because we all do things that aren't good. the problem is it's not enough to say i'm sorry, and children especially need to learn that. if you do something bad to another person, you need to make amends as well as apologize. so, here is the factor tip of the day, think back over the last few weeks and months and if you've hurt somebody, even if you've apologized, try to make it up to them in a concrete way. and going forward, i'm sorry should always be accompanied by some form of restitution. that will automatically make you a person with class. factor tip of the d
